5. Is there a requirement that the additional time be all at the beginning or all at the end of the workday?

No. An employee's workday must be extended by at least 3 hours to qualify for the meal reimbursement at the discretion of the agency head. If the additional time is all at the beginning of the day, then breakfast or lunch reimbursement seem to be reasonable. Likewise, if the additional time is at the end of the workday, then dinner reimbursement seems to be reasonable, or possibly lunch depending on the departure time.
